Famous Celebrity Comedians… Comedian Ray Romano is a true-to-life case of childhood dreams coming true. One gets the impression that the success of humble comedian turned actor Ray Romano is more of a surprise to him than it is to those who supported him in his yes as a struggling futon deliveryman moonlighting in standup. One of his dreams, to perform in front of legendary late-night television host Johnny Carson, came true in 1991. Finally gaining national exposure and seemingly on the fast track to stardom, more television appearances soon followed, with a 1995 appearance on Late Night With David Letterman prompting Letterman to begin talks with Romano about the idea of developing a sitcom. Premiering in September 13, 1996, Everybody Loves Raymond found the now popular comic’s offbeat domestic observations striking a chord with both audiences and critics alike.
